Genesis CDA 20
It may be the Croix de Fer's little brother - but our CDA is still one mighty bike!
Sharing the same geometry and legendary handling as it's steel counterpart, the CDA swaps out steel for aluminium and in turn passes a nice cost saving on to you.
For a little more cash, the CDA 20 gets you an upgrade to Shimano's excellent 9-speed Sora levers and mechs.
Cable disc brakes and 37mm tyres make it the perfect entry into the world of adventure bikes.
The fact that it's compatible with a pannier rack and mudguards also makes it ideal as an everyday commuting workhorse, or winter training machine.
